Nissan LEAF Sales in October Continue to Set Records

2015 Nissan Leaf

While the Chevrolet Volt stagnated, the Nissan LEAF surged, setting yet another new monthly sales record. It has now sold more EVs in a single year than anyone ever in the United States, and shows no signs of slowing down.

Last October, Nissan LEAF sales in October 2014 were up 29.3% over October 2013, marking the 20th consecutive month of increasing year-over-year sales. It also helped reassert itself as the best-selling EV in the country, though we doubt anyone questioned that in the first place. So far this year, the LEAF has sold a record 24,411 units, up 35% year-to-date.

This doesn’t bode well for its closest competitor, the Chevy Volt, which has been stagnating this year. The Volt was down 28.8 percent in October and is down 14.9% so far this year.

At Nissan of Lake Charles, we expect the LEAF to keep riding that momentum, with a little help from a new TV ad that was recently launched. It encourages consumers to “kick gas” by saving money on fuel. A good tip, as the LEAF doesn’t use any fuel at all! Check it out below:
